The Friday arraignment of a Saugus man charged with resisting arrest after he allegedly pulled a knife on his mother and deputies was rescheduled to next week, officials said.

Christopher Orona, 21, charged with one felony count of resisting an officer, is scheduled to appear in Santa Clarita Superior Court Monday, said Shiara Davila-Morales, a Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office spokeswoman.

Orona allegedly threatened his mother with a knife in his home before struggling with deputies who tried to pull the weapon away, said Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Brenda Cambra.

“Deputies really did a fantastic job of controlling this individual who was completely out of control and trying to assault them,” Cambra said.

Deputies arrested Orona on Tuesday on suspicion of battery and assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer with the likelihood of causing great bodily injury, Cambra said.

Deputies responded to a call in the 29000 block of Bouquet Canyon Road about a man threatening to cut his mother’s throat during an argument, Cambra said.

Orona’s parents agreed to have their son leave with a friend and allowed him to enter the house to gather his things with deputies by his side, Cambra said.

Orona then allegedly grabbed a knife, and the deputies immediately tried to take the knife away as Orona struggled with them, Cambra said.

After the deputies removed the knife and arrested Orona, the man allegedly continued to struggle and they had to apply leg restraints, Cambra said.

Orona suffered minor injuries and was transported to Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital, Cambra said.

The suspect was being held in lieu of $50,000 bail at the Twin Towers Correctional Facility in Los Angeles.
